CAMPUS QUARANTINE UPDATE & REMINDER TO TEST



Yesterday, Wednesday, Feb 3rd, all students received this message notifying them that campus quarantine had been completed and some residential student restrictions have been lifted. Later this week and weekend we welcome back residential students who quarantined at home and those that did not require a quarantine. Commuter students are welcomed back to campus starting February 8th after they’ve received a negative COVID test result.


Reminder: Faculty must have a negative COVID test result prior to their first in-person class.

PLAGIARISM DETECTION PLATFORM

Do you use TurnItIn?


Information Systems is evaluating possible alternatives to TurnItIn for the future. They would like to identify 10-20 faculty who can help test and evaluate different platforms in their Spring courses during March and April. If you currently use TurnItIn for assignments and are interested in volunteering to test alternative plagiarism detection systems, please contact Ursula Jones.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH STUDENT PROGRAMS
